The Best Place to Swim on Santorini

The most enjoyable part of our visit to Santorini was at Amoudi, a small village below Oia. Swimming in the translucent, bracing water was exhilirating. Use swim goggles or a snorkle mask to view the unforgettable underwater scene, a tangle of huge ropes, reminiscent of a Discovery TV program of deep sea diving into aqua water immediately turning into the darkest blue as the ocean floor plunges steeply downward. Swim to the rocky island a short distance away where the latest Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants movie was filmed; there is a tiny chapel to visit and then you too can jump off the cliff into the most beautiful water we've ever seen. Then gaze directly up at the most jaw dropping and brilliant juxtaposition of blue water, brown and orange rock of the caldera, magnificently crowned by the gleaming white washed buildings of Oia--something we will never forget. To top off your experience, dine on the local specialties of white egg plant and barbounia (red mullet) at one of the three dock side restaurants overlooking the most brightly hued and gleaming water we have ever seen. The Sunset was the one recommended to us by our host Mme. Petridou, who is one of the best sources of report a problem
